Pluteus leoninus #2

Posted by
Johan Dierckx (Wijnegem, Belgium) on 8 October 2010 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

Pluteus leoninus. This is the specimen which was out of focus in yesterdays post. (For more info about the species I refer to that image.) Because I found these specimens at the upper side of a rather thick fallen branch, it was rather easy to move around and make some images from different angles. In this image I tried to catch the light falling through the tiny stem accentuating its striate structure and reflecting that way at the underside of the cap and gills.

@Julie: This is autumn at it's best I think. I liked most the structure in the stem which became visible with the backlight so I tried to focus on that part. Greetz !

Veronique from Sarrouilles, France

excellent light and focus

@Veronique: Thank you very much, Veronique. I tried to show the structures in the stem. These can only be seen well with the backlight falling through. Greetz !

Christine from Duns, United Kingdom

Beautiful light I love how it makes the stem almost luminous

@Christine: Due to the backlight you can see the structure of the stem. Otherwise this is very hard to see. But you have to be lucky for the light to fall through the stem... Greetz !!!

Marleen from Netherlands

Goed gelukt- alsof er een lichtje brandt op de begane grond!

@Marleen: Het is nochtans enkel het hemellichtje dat voor dit effect heeft gezorgd - ach wat zouden we als fotografen toch moeten zonder de zon :-)....

I am speechless!
It's perfect!

The light on the stem is very effective in showing the detail. I like the lines and the little specks of soil.

@Julie Brown: I decided not to remove those little specks of soil to keep the natural feeling in the image. I know some photographers carrying around little brushes to "clean" their subjects but I prefer not to.
